The person who found the bodies tells 1 Limburg, “I was walking here with the dog and a woman was on the side… I then went somewhere else into the forest and there I found a gentleman who was also dead… Not something you expect when you go for a walk”.

The police have seized a car park nearby, but no other information is known. No one has been apprehended and the area has been closed off for the investigation. The investigators are talking to hikers that were in the area at the time of the incident and calling on anyone with information to report. Around 25 investigators have been assigned to the case.

  1. Here are some little suggestions:

    “stabbed wounds” is usually written: stab wounds – stabbed wounds means that the wounds (already existing) were stabbed.

    “dogs which” maybe should be dogs, which

    “car park” should be ‘car parked’ – car park literally means a kind of a park and is a place and is a noun, in this instance.

    “hikers that” is fine, but ‘hikers, who’ might be better

    Very good article!
